FUTURE ENGINEER

VICTORY LAP 5K + BE GREAT FOUNDATION

To increase the representation of minorities and individuals from low income families towards the development of and participation in engineering and technology based businesses and careers. BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color are twice as likely to be adversely impacted by the disruption of automation technologies such as artificial intelligence, autonomous devices, and the Internet of Things as counterparts of other races and cultures. Over 50% of all service based jobs are occupied by African Americans, though they only comprise 13% of the population in the United States. This disparity presents a mounting concern in an already wide gap in income, wealth, and economic opportunity.

Be Great Foundation Inc. was created to address such economic and opportunity disparities by advocating for STEM education, entrepreneurship and equity for underrepresented populations. Inspired by Nipsey Hussle, the purpose of the Victory Lap 5K is to raise funding to support students and entrepreneurs in our local community towards the progression and development of STEM careers in an effort to prepare individuals from underrepresented and marginalized populations to secure the jobs and create the businesses of the future.
